Fine motor skills with Numicon

by Bhavini Pandya November 12, 2020

Develop your child’s fine motor skills with this fun What’s in my tray? activity that helps them count to 10 using small objects.

What to do:

  • Gather a range of small objects in one tray- small enough to pick up with tweezers.
  • Make a grid in the other tray and place the numicon shapes into each space.
  • Ask your child to use the tweezers to place the correct number of items into each numicon shape.
  • Make sure your child counts aloud as they are placing the objects.
